Hastening the Work of Salvation


In Doctrine and Covenants 88:73 it says " Behold I will hasten my work in its time."
This is the time that the Lord is hastening His work of salvation. WE are part of the prophecy in the scriptures. Elder Russell M. Nelson said, "That time of hastening is now."

In this day and age we have been blessed with unlimited resources right at our fingertips. To make it easier and faster for us to hasten the work of the Lord.

What are some of the ways you have witnessed in hastening the work? 

It is our duty as members of the church to bring others unto Christ. We as members need to take full action in hastening the work. Spencer W. Kimball said, " We must lengthen our stride and must do it now."
How can we lengthen our stride by serving the Lord daily? Some good ideas for making small sacrifices for hastening the work could be participate in going to the temple, reading our scriptures, praying more often, and rely on the Lord for help. 
This is how we can help hasten the work with small sacrifices like reading our scriptures and familiarizing ourselves with the gospel to make missionary work easier. 

Everyone has a part in hastening the work, even if it is a simple invite to a church activity or service. We can do our fair share by bringing others unto Christ. 
As we read our scriptures and study diligently we will be prepare to share the gospel. How do you think preparing for a mission now could help you contribute to hastening the work? (Heleman 11: 1, 6)

We being the rising generation have an important duty to bring others to Christ.  "We can be blessed  to take part in the hastening of the Lord's work. Consider opportunities you have to contribute to the hastening of the Lord's work."( Home-study guide) May we all fulfill the prophecy that the Lord has revealed to us and help in hastening the work of salvation and work diligently to bring others to Christ.
